First, let us thank you for taking the time to read our letter. We know that adoption is an extremely difficult decision for you to deal with. We cannot even begin to imagine what you are going through. Honestly, just considering adoption is tremendously admirable and selfless. We are honored that you are considering us as adoptive parents for your precious child. We want you to know that if you choose us to be the adoptive parents, we will love your child unconditionally and give him or her every opportunity available. You will be giving us a gift that words cannot convey.
We have been trying to have a baby for sometime now and we have honestly tried everything medically possible. It just didn’t happen for us. Throughout this process, we have increasingly felt that adoption is the best way for us fulfill our dream of having a family. We hope that with this look into our lives you might be able to see if we are a good fit for your baby. We will teach him or her values, traditions, and much more. Our main priority for this child is to be loved and to always feel safe.
Thank you for considering us as your baby’s adoptive parents.
We met at the dental clinic on an Army base in Germany, where Cody was the patient and Stephanie was his dental assistant. We started dating later that year and we got married three months later. Cody shortly deployed to Afghanistan after we got married. We were finally reunited about a year later and the Army sent us to our first duty station in Virginia. After two years, we moved down to North Carolina.
Cody is a Staff Sergeant in the United States Army and serves as a Military Police. He is also working on his Bachelors in Homeland Security. He loves cars and trucks and would spend most days working on them.
Stephanie used to be a Dental Assistant for the Army, but now she works in the hospital as a Medical Support Assistant. She has some college, but she is working on getting a certification as a Dental Assistant.
Our Home & Pets
We live in a quiet subdivision in North Carolina. Our house is a three-bedroom, two-bath house with a massive backyard. We have a wonderful school district not too far from the house. Nearby, there is a historic downtown area with multiple museums, fairgrounds, parks, and hiking trails.
We have three amazing dogs that we got shortly after we moved to Virginia. Our first is a purebred Black Lab named Ranger. Next is Patton he is our purebred Golden Retriever. He is the sensitive one. He loves to lay at our feet and get his belly rubbed. Finally, the diva of the house is Maize. She is a Lab-mix and we rescued her from a shelter. She stole our hearts from the moment we saw her and she knows it!
Our Extended Family
We have very small families. Cody has one older sibling. His family is mostly located throughout Texas and parts of Indiana. We visit on alternates of the summer and holidays. Stephanie has only one older sibling too, and he is a teacher in Japan. Her parents retired in Germany. We try to visit them every other year and they come here when we are not going over there. Most of her family lives in Connecticut, Arizona, and here in North Carolina. We can say that we truly have family everywhere! Also, being a part of the military means we have our military family. We may be scattered, but we always have someone dear in a state we want to visit.
What Led Us To Adoption
We knew when we were dating that we wanted to have a family. As soon as Cody got back from Afghanistan we started to try. It wasn’t working, so we sought medical help. The doctor told us that we had unexplained infertility and they couldn’t figure out why it wasn’t happening. We did five rounds of IUI (intrauterine insemination) all of which failed. In the end, we knew we wanted to adopt after because we have always dreamed of a larger family. We have so much love to give a precious child.

Choose a Family for
Your Baby With Confidence
As you browse our list of hopeful adoptive parents, you can feel confident in knowing that all of the adoptive families working with Angel Adoption are prepared to offer your baby a safe, stable, and loving environment along with a wealth of opportunities for a happy and fulfilling life.
Each adoptive parent has been thoroughly evaluated through a home study course conducted by a licensed agency. A completed home study means the family is emotionally, physically, and financially ready to adopt a baby.
The home study process includes assessments of each parent’s character, marital stability, financial situation, lifestyle, and medical history. The agency also runs background checks to verify there is no record of criminal activity or child abuse. In addition, a social worker will inspect the family’s home to ensure it is a safe environment for a child.
Furthermore, Angel Adoption requires each family to be educated on adopting and parenting. After a baby has been placed with the adoptive family, a social worker will continue to monitor and supervise the family. We go to great lengths to make sure all the families you have to choose from are going to be excellent parents for your baby!Return to Waiting Families
